Simulated Process Screen Printing
Cross over to the dark side with style
Let’s face it, t-shirts are the number one choice of clothing for people who like to make a statement. Today, more and more people are even starting their own clothing lines, using graphic art they design themselves that might require a more dimensional screen printing process, especially when printing on a dark color t-shirt is desired.
At Scrappy Apparel, we offer a variety of screen printing options depending on our client’s needs. Simulated process printing is a great way to print on dark colored t-shirts, especially for detailed, multi-colored artwork. The detailed process uses a series of layers that build upon one another. If you are looking to sell your shirts in a retail space, this might be the option for you.
Taking The Tee Seriously
The humble tee is worn by everyone, of every style. Millionaires rock ‘em, fitness fans run in them, fashionistas strut their stuff in them.
Despite their appearance in every wardrobe, we believe that there’s no such thing as ‘just a t shirt’. After all, they can make your company cash, strengthen your brand image, even impress your clients. So, perhaps the humble tee ain’t so humble after all. Perhaps it’s capable of the incredible. Given the right printer and the right printing technique, that is.
For impact, sometimes an upgrade is in order. By choosing simulated process screen printing, you get a sharp, bold design that packs a colorful punch against its dark backdrop.
Simulated printing process can handle the most detailed, multi-colored artwork. But it takes a skilled printer. Anything less, and you might be unpleasantly, depressingly surprised.
Here’s how this complex process works…
1. The artist separates the design into a series of different image files.
2. The files are then printed onto the tee using separate screens – one right after the other.
3. The colors build up and up and up – until the original file is perfectly recreated.
